Rowa Phos remove unwanted phosphates ( P04) from your reef tank with their patented, man-made ferric hydroxide made in Germany. Phosphate (P04) removal in a reef tank is extremely important because nuisance algae is fed by phosphates, and coral health and growth is greatly affected by it. Unwanted algae growth can overrun our tank spoiling the aesthetics look of our tank. Additionally, high phosphate levels can also reduce the growth of coral skeletons.
RowaPhos is a unique man made ferric hydroxide material specifically produced for efficient removal of phosphates, arsenic and silicates from fresh and salt water, having initially been developed in Germany for treating mains water supplies. As such it should not be confused with natural materials, which are generally based on aluminium oxide, (zeolite).
RowaPhos is manufactured using a Patented process which makes it physically and chemically completely different to the vast array of other iron based media which have sprung up to ride on the sucess of the Rowa product. Most of these products are iron oxide based and have a higher capacity for phosphate than aluminium based medias but do not touch the engineered properties of RowaPhos.
In an independent series of tests carried out by the Berlin Technical University on the five most commonly used phosphate removers at the time, RowaPhos was found to be the most efficient in removing phosphate from water. Other medias tested reached only to 30 – 40 % of its removal capacity by weight. Additionally RowaPhos was found to continue to remove phosphates at lower concentrations and had a higher maximum holding capacity.
